The UP4DAt App project took four months from conception to a beta-user ready app. We spent just three months in development to take it from the specification paper to the App Store, with one further month to fix bugs.
UP4DAT is now open for beta users and testers in order to generate feedback. We’re looking forward to developing the app further based on the feedback.
The development of this exciting app was not without the sorts of challenges that every app developer faces with every project. Our main challenge was the demand of the Customer, who wanted to change the structure and specs at the latter end of development, in order increase the function of the app. This resulted in many minor bugs that needed to be fixed after the changes to the coding.
With retrospect, as a result of spending additional time and resources on the bug fixing, our project team have discovered that new ideas and thoughts about an app should be voiced and implemented at the early stages of a project. Working with our Customer, we now understand that the way forward is to ask for all changes, thoughts and ideas to be fed back straight after the first version is released. With this new knowledge, we’ll be able to get future projects to market quicker than competitors.
The UP4DAT app allows users to enjoy a more time-efficient interaction, whether that’s with friends, family members or colleagues. The app does away with long message threads which can hold conversations up. Instead users simply invite the required people to a specific venue at a specific time and attendees simply need to accept or decline the invitation. Comments and suggestions about changes to an event can be made after they have accepted or declined the invitation, and users can also invite new members to attend.
A key feature of the app is the ‘Friendz in Zone’ feature. This informs the user if any friends are located nearby when a user travels to a new location; this helps users schedule meetings with immediacy according to where people are geographically based at any given time.
At the core of the app concept is a very promising product. However, we believe that there is plenty of work to be carried out before the app can generate a wave of interest. Greater awareness and involvement will help the app spread initially by word of mouth and social networks. Key for the customer is gaining and retaining users and encouraging them to be involved with app frequently. We believe that an app which has plenty of regular users will always transform into a profit making product.
